C 66% A Walk Among the Tombstones (2014) " For part of the promenade, A Walk Among the Tombstones is an enjoyable one, but once we get to the series of finales it's clear that in the end it's probably not a schlepp worth taking." — Twitch
Posted Sep 19, 2014
C- —— Cub (Welp) " If it was just tripe it'd be easy to simply forget this film, but Cub is even more frustrating as it seems that it really could have been something special. In the end we're left with a simple, spooky campfire story that quickly fizzles out." — Twitch
Posted Sep 19, 2014
B- 64% St. Vincent (2014) " The movie is worth seeing for Murray alone, yet along the way I'm betting at least some of you will fall for its charms." — Twitch
Posted Sep 17, 2014
A- —— Run " A unique and powerful film, Lacôte demonstrates fine craft, and has assembled an extraordinary cast to tell a compelling, raw and revealing film. A bold look at an area of the world whose stories too seldom reach the international stage." — Twitch
Posted Sep 15, 2014
B- 86% The Voices " The Voices is a silly, schizoid film, but for some it may be profound, reveling in its collision of ideas and tone." — Twitch
Posted Sep 15, 2014
C- 85% The Imitation Game (2014) " While the ingredients are there for this game to be a memorable one, I'm afraid this latest film about Turing fails its own test, feeling robotic and wooden." — Twitch
Posted Sep 15, 2014
C+ 82% Wild (2014) " I'm not wild about Wild, but it's fair to say that it's a decent film, well shot and performed, with an interesting structure that provides emotional and narrative complexity." — Twitch
Posted Sep 15, 2014
A+ 100% The Look of Silence " The Look of Silence is one facet of perhaps the most important documentary project of the 21st century. Moving, sublime, and astonishing, this is a film for the ages and one not to be missed. " — Twitch
Posted Sep 12, 2014
B+ 40% Tusk (2014) " Tusk sinks its teeth into story telling in a way that's both entertaining and delightfully disturbing." — Twitch
Posted Sep 8, 2014
B- —— The Dead Lands " Expectations should be tempered, as the film defies easy categorization, and those expecting a simple action film may be disappointed. For those willing to take the journey, The Dead Lands proves to be a memorable, rewarding experience." — Twitch
Posted Sep 8, 2014
C- —— La French " Given that the only real enjoyment for The Connection is its connection to Friedkin's epic films (let's not forget the under-loved sequel), this examination of the Marseille heroin lords, with their political and police corruption, is entirely redundant." — Twitch
Posted Sep 8, 2014
A 56% The Last 5 Years (2015) " A moving, at times magnificent work, The Last Five Years showcases some pretty immense talents in a fairly intimate setting, combining a witty libretto with memorable tunes and a well-structured story. One of the best musicals in many years." — Twitch
Posted Sep 8, 2014
A- 91% Charlie's Country " Charlie's Country comes across as far more than some tourist destination, we are invited into his land to experience the highs and lows of the life he has made there...Remarkable performances and assured direction, definitely worth visiting if you can." — Twitch
Posted Sep 8, 2014
A 89% Big Game " It feels like one of those ideas that feels like it should have been done long ago... Big Game is big fun, a terrific genre film that once again shows that the Finns can make films of this nature that rival those from anywhere else in the world." — Twitch
Posted Sep 6, 2014
A+ 82% Nightcrawler (2014) " Deeply philosophical while remaining both captivating and entertaining, Nightcrawler is that rare breed of worm, one with an Art Film heart and a Hollywood shine...Easily one of this year's best films." — Twitch
Posted Sep 5, 2014
B 78% Rosewater (2014) " Stewart's passion for the project comes out in almost every frame of film. While not quite the masterpiece I was perhaps unfairly hoping for, this directorial debut from one of the great comedic minds of this era is still something well worth seeking out." — Twitch
Posted Sep 2, 2014
C- 46% Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014) " Another exercise in seeing Eva Green bring her A-game...she practically rewrites title to be A DAME TO SEE SIN CITY 2 FOR. Sin City remains a place of broken dreams & lost opportunities, an exploitation movie that doesn't fully exploit its opportunities" — Twitch
Posted Aug 21, 2014
C- 33% The Expendables 3 (2014) " As per a sentiment I'll credit to Jurassic Park, amassing these guys all on screen asks the cinematic question "could we?", but never the follow up "should we?"." — Twitch
Posted Aug 15, 2014
B 92% Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) " By its very construction Guardians of the Galaxy is trying to both be smug and self-aware, but also heroic and adventurous. For the most part the film manages to pull off this balance, making for a fun and many ways laudable film." — Twitch
Posted Jul 29, 2014
A —— Zombeavers " If I'm to be the only one, I'll jump up and proudly say I'm on team Zombeaver. It's some of the most fun I've had in a theatre all year, and it provides a terrific time if you'll give it and its hairy creatures a chance to get under your skin." — Twitch
Posted Jul 21, 2014
B+ 90% Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) " Bold and brash. It's an action movie with plenty of ideas... There's a Shakespearean motif this time 'round, with plenty of court betrayal and the like (I admit to thinking "Et tu, you filthy brute?" as a particularly appalling pun midway through)." — Twitch
Posted Jul 10, 2014
C- 27% Deliver Us from Evil (2014) " Deliver Us From Evil simply doesn't deliver." — Twitch
Posted Jul 2, 2014
B+ 18% Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) " Wahlberg helps put the bro in Hasbro.. In the end, I simply raised my arms at the sheer mad spectacle of it all, and shouted "Woo!"" — Twitch
Posted Jun 26, 2014
D 53% Jersey Boys (2014) " Faggedaboutit, just throw on some of Four Seasons' many songs (including several excellent numbers that couldn't be pigeonholed awkwardly into this narrative) as a far better way of getting to what made these guys so memorable in the first place." — Twitch
Posted Jun 20, 2014
A- 92% How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014) " There's a genuine sense of wonder captured, an almost glorious feeling of flight and freedom, reveling in the sheer cinematic pleasure of being taken along for the ride. " — Twitch
Posted Jun 12, 2014
B+ 84% 22 Jump Street (2014) " No, the film's not as funny, or fresh as the previous version, but it's charmingly aware of said fact. It's a film that says "fuck it" and does it anyway, throwing caution to the wind and yelling "something cool!" along the way." — Twitch
Posted Jun 12, 2014
A- 82% The Double (2014) " This is a smart and sophisticated film to be sure, and its craft has much to applaud, but it's the way that the film is never burdened with an overabundance of dreariness or ennui that helps make it the success that it is." — Moviefone
Posted Jun 12, 2014
A- 90% Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow (2014) " For all those that complain they don't make them like they used to, I recommend you get to the biggest screen you can find, buy copious amounts of popcorn, and enjoy this slice of summer movie-going fun." — Moviefone
Posted Jun 6, 2014
B+ 100% The Salt of the Earth " As a celebration of the photographic art of one remarkable contributor, The Salt of the Earth is unparallelled." — Twitch
Posted May 27, 2014
D 19% The Captive " This is a bit of a lull for this director, and while he continues to explore notions surrounding the loss of a child (a theme consistent with several of his works), it's hard to see that "The Captive" does much to add to his cachet." — Moviefone
Posted May 26, 2014
A+ 100% Red Army " Quite simply, Red Army is fabulous, one of the most fun and fascinating films of the year." — Twitch
Posted May 25, 2014
B 66% The Rover (2014) " It's the steadiness of The Rover that is its most defining feature, a sense that you're perambulating towards an inevitable showdown and just along for the ride." — Twitch
Posted May 25, 2014
B+ 88% Foxcatcher (2014) " Some may not have the patience to stick with the film while it almost floats along, but for those willing to enjoy the remarkable performances and restrained direction, there is plenty to reward a committed audience." — Twitch
Posted May 25, 2014
A 89% Wild Tales " An exciting and energizing achievement in film-making, a truly funny work that's equally deep and philosophical, all while not taking itself too seriously." — Twitch
Posted May 23, 2014
A+ 90% Mommy " Mommy is simply terrific, already one of the best films of the year. It's a film of rare poignancy and insight told with a delightfully nasal Québequois timbre. " — Twitch
Posted May 22, 2014
A+ 67% The Salvation " If The Salvation is not a perfect film, it's pretty damn close to being one." — Twitch
Posted May 20, 2014
C 50% Maps to the Stars (2014) " Cronenberg is now in a phase that simply no longer speaks to me, a cold and dreary cinema that's as dull as it is forgettable." — Twitch
Posted May 18, 2014
A- 100% It Follows " It's a work that manages to be both old school and very fresh, a wonderfully restrained film that still packs quite a punch." — Twitch
Posted May 18, 2014
A —— Timbuktu " It is a tragedy, yes, but a very human one, with an overall caustic, almost nihilistic absurdity running throughout." — Twitch
Posted May 17, 2014
C+ 100% Mr. Turner (2014) " Mr. Turner isn't quite an aesthetic failure, yet neither is it an unabashed success the way many of Leigh's recent works have proven to be." — Twitch
Posted May 15, 2014
F 10% Grace Of Monaco " The film is, in some ways, worse than I make it sound." — Twitch
Posted May 14, 2014
A- 73% Neighbors (2014) " One of the funniest films of the year," — Moviefone
Posted May 9, 2014
A- 89% Locke (2014) " Locke is a terrific little film; despite its closed-in setting, it never feels overtheatrical or contrived...the perfect blend of setting and performance." — Moviefone
Posted May 2, 2014
B- 26% Brick Mansions (2014) " No one is going to confuse Brick Mansions with art, nor even an action film that lives up to the standards of its contemporaries or the original on which it's based. It is, however, kind of fun, and in this case, maybe that's enough." — Twitch
Posted Apr 23, 2014
D 19% Transcendence (2014) " This is little more than a Lawnmower Man redux, mowing its way through maudlin metaphysics and moral manure." — Twitch
Posted Apr 17, 2014
B+ 91% The Final Member (2014) " There's a confidence and swagger to the film that speaks of far more experience with this type of story telling." — Twitch
Posted Apr 17, 2014
A 79% The Raid 2 (2014) " One of the more sophisticated, complex and brutal action films ever made." — Moviefone
Posted Mar 20, 2014
B+ 79% Muppets Most Wanted (2014) " There's plenty to love about this film, and it's told with respect for the traditions while forging ahead." — Twitch
Posted Mar 20, 2014
A- 60% Nymphomaniac: Volume II (2014) " With echoes to his earlier works, an extremely dark sense of humour, and a surprisingly endearing look at his tortured characters, this is most definitely a film worth seeing for those willing to brave the subject matter." — Moviefone
Posted Mar 20, 2014
A- 75% Nymphomaniac: Volume I (2014) " With echoes to his earlier works, an extremely dark sense of humour, and a surprisingly endearing look at his tortured characters, this is most definitely a film worth seeing for those willing to brave the subject matter." — Moviefone
